Fathers Day Sorted With Matalan

Fathers Day is one of those times of the year where we get to celebrate the Daddies in our lives, be that the Father of our children or our own Dads. For me it's all about celebrating Adam who's Daddy to our little boys and my step-dad who's been in my life since I was 9 years old (I didn't know my real Father throughout much of my life) and of course Adam's Dad - my Father-in-law. 

This year Fathers Day is on the 19th June, which is also the same day as Adam's Mums birthday so they'll be a lot of gift buying and celebrating going on for us around that time! With Adam and gifts, it's usually about Lego - there's always a new set he has his eye on. But we also like to pick him up a few extra little gifts. Things that he can open and be surprised at!

An Interview With My Three Year Old

It's funny because I remember so well being worried about Ethan's speech (or lack of it) for what felt like a long time. I knew deep down that he would talk when he was ready, but of course, as is natural to any parent - I worried. Be it needlessly. 

Because now he is an absolute chatterbox, he really is. He's rarely quiet and if he is, he's probably doing something he shouldn't be. His words and his sentences still amaze me. Here I am, with a child that talks to me. That calls me Mummy and even tells me that he loves me (or lubs me). 

People have told me to record Ethan's speech, they've told me that they personally miss their own little ones baby talk and the way they call different things different names.

Something For Me!

Happy Friday everyone. I hope you are looking forward to the weekend. I think tomorrow Adam and I are going to try and just be 'off' asides from Adam probably building Ethan's new bed big boy bed, we just want to spend some time together as a family tomorrow. As you'll know from my loft conversion update post, it's been rather manic here and the boys have both had chicken pox. So we want to just stop for a day and also enjoy the fact that we can all leave the house now that Logan's spots have all cleared up.

On Thursday my new camera came! I'd wanted a new DSLR for a while as I love taking photographs, but my DSLR was old and it didn't really like the settings I used to make my photos brighter. I knew it was bad timing financially with the conversion, but as I use my camera everyday for my blog and my blog is now my income, it made sense to invest. I'm excited to start taking photos of the boys and also use it when we go to the Lake District next week. Which reminds me.. I really need to start packing..!!

The Benefits of Villa Family Holidays

Villa Holidays are becoming increasingly popular with families these days and there are several reasons as to why this is. In this post I am going to explore just some of the many benefits of booking a villa as your accommodation for your family holiday. 

Baby Shower Gift Ideas

baby shower gift idea, Find a Present,
I love how many unique, fun and interesting things you can get as gifts these days. There's something for everyone and it can all be found with just a click of the Internet. I used to think that buying a present for a baby shower could be quite difficult but with the help of sites like who scan the Internet looking for the best gifts out there and collate them all under one helpful handy 'baby shower' tab, it's no longer a challenge to find something.

Funny Cat Tees, With Spreadshirt

I'm the first to admit that I am a total crazy cat lady. I don't know why it is but I just have a connection with cats. It's been that way since I was tiny. We've always had cats and I honestly don't think a house without cats would feel like home. People who don't like cats - I just don't get you! ;)

Our Lovely Little Chaos

What a time it has been! It's been hard, draining and mentally and physically exhausting. Having our loft converted whilst our babies were 3 years and 10 months old was always going to be tough - we knew that. We'd prepared ourselves for a tough time, but we knew that it would be worth it and that we needed to do it for the extra room. 

Our new bedroom and conversion. Whilst it's not yet fully furnished, we absolutely love this space, it's so light and peaceful - it's become our favourite room in the house.
